I need to redeploy a Brocade FCX648s out of the stack: questions?

I need to redeploy a FCX648s out of a stack, when I take that switch out of the stack will it have a config on it?

I am moving this switch about 50ft to a different cabinet in my datacenter, is it possible to keep it a member of the stack with any cabling I might be able to purchase?

 

If not, I will be limited to the trunked 1gig connection back to the stack, correct?

 

If I am indeed limited to configuring a trunk port back to the switches in the stack, the command for setting up trunking between two interfaces is, "trunk ethernet x/x/x"?

 

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide. I am still new to Brocade switches.

 

Regards,

The longest stack cable you can get is a 5M which will not get what you need.

 

As far as unconfiguring it goes, use the "stack unconfigure" command and there are a few ways to do it.

 

wether or not it comes out without a config depends on how you unconfigure it from the stack, but once it is out of the stack you can always use the "fcx# stack unconfigure clean" (out of my memory) and it should erase any stack config left on the switch.

 

And yes, you will then need to use the 4 1gbe uplinks above the stacking ports to connect back to your core. Although, i think you can replace the stacking module on the 648s with a fcx-2sfpp module. Do some reasearch and you will find out.

 

let me know if you have any more questions.

You can use standard 10GBASE-SR transceiver and MMF cable to stack the switches up to 300M (984 ft.). Do you have 10 Gig modules on your switches?

 

Thanks
